Event Details

Since 2004, the Black Leadership Conference has been the African American Student Union’s premier leadership event created for and by Black students, providing hundreds of young Black leaders a forum where they can hone their leadership skills to become changemakers on campus and in their communities. In the past, our conferences have featured renowned keynote speakers, workshops for achieving success in academia and industry, and equipped students with the tools and networking opportunities needed to foster their personal and professional growth.

This year's conference theme is “Black Brilliance: Passion. Purpose. Intentionality.” The conference vision is "To empower young Black leaders to use their talents, gifts, and brilliance to uplift the Black community and advance the cause of justice in their personal and professional lives.”

Speakers include: Nsé Ufot, Tech alumnus and CEO of the New Georgia Project; Andre Dickens, Tech alumnus and City of Atlanta council member; Kaye Husbands Fealing, Dean of Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts; Jeanne Kerney, Tech alumnus and president of the Georgia Tech Black Alumni Organization (GTBAO), and others

The conference will feature workshops on political activism, financial literacy, health and wellbeing during Covid-19, and resources and support for pursuing graduate degrees and careers. 

Co-sponsored by: Georgia Tech Black Alumni Organization, Georgia Tech Society of Black Engineers, and Georgia Tech Office of Minority Educational Development on this year's conference.
